Film on Apple’s co-founder will be titled Steve Jobs, according to registrations

Steve Jobs

Sony Pictures recently acquired the rights to the biography on Apple’s late co-founder and chairman simply titled ”Steve Jobs”, by Walter Isaacson.

Originally called iSteve: the Book Of Jobs, Isaacson eventually persuaded his publisher Simon & Schuster to change the book title.

It now appears the film will keep the same title of the non-fiction book when it’s released in theaters, according to eight recent domain name registrations by Sony Pictures made on October 11, 2011, that include domains like SteveJobs-film.com and SteveJobs-thefilm.com.

The full list of registrations include: stevejobs-film.com, stevejobs-film.net, stevejobs-movie.net, stevejobs-thefilm.com, stevejobs-thefilm.net, stevejobs-themovie.net, stevejobsfilm.net, and stevejobsthefilm.net.

Sony Pictures did not secure the domains for SteveJobsfilm.com or SteveJobsmovie.com. 

Both of those domains were registered back in late August by Stoneport LLC, a web design company out of Virginia, shortly after Steve Jobs resigned as CEO of Apple.  Each web address resolves to an empty business profile page provided by Network Solutions.
